1952 Packard Pan American

Share on:

Since the mid-1930s, the Henney Motor Company had been the exclusive builder of Packard's commercial cars. In 1952, Henney's president Charles Russell Feldman struck a deal with Packard president Hugh Ferry to build Packard's newest show car, the Pan American. Designer Richard Arbib's drawing were given to Henney's craftsmen, along with a standard 1951 '250' convertible to work on. Six weeks later the job was finished. The convertible was de-chromed and sectioned, the rear seat removed and a 'continental-style' spare tire mounted on the rear bumper. The interior was covered in leather, and the car was painted in 'Green-Gold Metallic', a color developed by DuPont. The Pan American was the hit of the 1952 International Motor Sports Show in New York. Packard commissioned Henney to produce five more of them. The first car cost Henney $18,262.92 to produce.

This car was one of the additional cars produced and was purchased in 1953. Of interest is the fact that this is one of only two known to have a convertible top.
